Borage: The Protector of Strawberries | afarmingartist

by afarmingartist

I learned of Borage last year and planted it in my herb garden.  I harvested the seeds from last year, and and it returned this year as a volunteer.  It has so many benefits, I am now using in a variety of places.

The herb borage (Borago officinalis) is known primarily as a culinary herb, but it has other benefits as a companion plant when planted with strawberry plants.  Borage is widely accepted as one of the best companion plants for its observed effects within a garden.  And, it has a specific affinity when planted alongside strawberry plants.
